hello

When I export the registrant list from a program my computer does not recognize that it’s a CSV file so it opens up and excel and instead of separating each data by column its full of comas and very hard to read file.

I tried it on other pc and it worked fine. So something to do with my settings on PC.  Any idea.

Depending on which version of Excel you are using will change exactly where the option is. Under the Data tab in a black spreadsheet select the existing data from text option and then select the delimiter as commas or whatever your CSV file is using specifically. That should resolve your issue on that machine.
